Subject: Great Show
Really solid stuff...except for some weird thing that Phil starts doing in Dark Star...and not spacey weird...more like he is trying to cue a song at a very awkward moment. Settle down easy Phily.

And I guess that is Dickey Betts on the 3rd set?

One of my favorite versions of Box of Rain ever. Phil and Donna sound great together!
The Climax of the song is beautiful.

My first Dead show June 9th & 10th, 1973....
My first LSD trip....
God Bless Charlie Miller, Kelton Burgess (who told me about this) and the Archive. I'm spending the exact 40th anniversary re-experiencing this mega concert.....
Nobody will ever convince me there was ever a better show, even if there is...including the numerous mistakes...
We got there after the music started the first day....I really wanted to hear Doug Sahm and I've never been able to confirm that he did or did not appear....the reviewer from Rolling Stone (whom I suspect spent the day at the hotel) says that Sahm opened Saturday and Wet Willie opened Sunday (RS gave the prize to Wet Willie but made no mention of the next sentence) memory was Wet Willie both days and a stunning, show-stopper the first day from a new band from Spartanburg,SC: The Marshall Tucker Band. Laugh all you want, dear DeadHeads, then listen to MTB's CD "Way Out West" from Sept. 26, 1973 at SF Winterland, especially " Everyday I Sing the Blues"...Bands just don't crank this hard anymore, period.....Jerry proves conclusively that all true rock n roll guitar playing starts and ends with Chuck Berry.....Any way thanks to Charlie Miller and Kelton Burgess...and everybody at Archive...40 year Flashback!!!!!!!

Subject: Good set, yes - but '73 being their best year ever, no
late '60s to me. the standouts here - morning dew, jack straw, bird song, dark star (especially the last third) and it takes a train to cry - probably the best version of this song i've ever heard, even over dylan's or kooper and stills on super sessions.

when they were on, they were really on.

likewise, when they were off, they were really off.

never did care much for the race is on - round and round and johnny be good are okay, but i'll take chuck berry any day of the week.

otherwise they were right on the button. el paso and big river are up there with johnny cash and marty robbins.

Subject: This one is epic!
Yet another red-hot incredibly long concert (4 hours and 35 minutes long, no less!) from the fabulous year of 1973, arguably the Dead´s finest year ever.
One of the things which make ´73 stand out, even by Dead standards, is that the jazz-influence was much more pronounced in that year than in any other era in the band´s history. Just listen to this concert´s ´Dark Star´ and you´ll know what I mean.
